Thirteen people, including a 3-year-old boy who suffered a gunshot wound to the head, were shot at a Chicago park in the Back of the Yards neighborhood Thursday night, authorities said.
Ten adults and the 3-year-old were transported by Fire Department ambulances after the attack in the 1800 block of West 51st Street in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, said Fire Department Deputy District Chief James Mungovan at the scene. A 12th victim was believed to have driven himself to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, a source said, citing preliminary information.
Police said later a total of 13 people were shot, the boy, two teens, and 10 adults, with the boy the most seriously wounded. The boy suffered a gunshot wound to the head at an ear that exited through his mouth, and was in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.
Chicago police were making no information about what happened public, except to say that the shooting appeared to be gang-related. The shootings took place on a basketball court on the 51st Street side of Cornell Square Park near Wood Street.

So the ear exiting his mouth wounded him? Gotta love how well those Chicago gun control laws are working!
Damn .. that caliph baraq sure made a ton o’kids .. eh?
Right up there with English grammatical laws.
Don’t be a racist know-it-all.
It’s just a cultural thing that outsiders wouldn’t understand
Uh...another ....13 shot?
Where are those numbers people when you need them.
I know it’s awful to say, but, this is Chicago so why is this news?
Tea Party I bet.
And why is a 3 year-old out in a park at 10:35PM?
His mama was there making sure no other b3tch looked at her “man.”
Because we have a welfare system that rewards teen girls without HS degrees who have babies out of wedlock. By what crazy calculus would anyone think a teen girl would make a good mom?
You can find the answer in "Lord Of The Flies".
Nothing to see here, move along.
50 years of "Great Society" programs.
You missed the point.
The :news: is not that that many people got killed this weekend.
The “point” is that it’s being shoved right in front of your face, that the media is going to do whatever it takes to demonize guns.
It seems to be on a massive scale now. Pretty much constant reports of (gun violence/global warming).
Who benefits? Cui bono?
Answer that question, and you have the answer.
Interesting there’s nothing in the news about this.....whereas the shooting at the Navy Yard and Sandy Hook, and CO, it was wall to wall non-stop tv coverage.
Chicago....gun free zone. Nothing to see here folks?
Feel bad for that little kid. Hope he can pull through..
51st atreet at the Lake is Hyde Park, Obamas old neighborhood. I know cause I used to live in Hyde Park. 1800 block west is getting into a bad neighborhood. Lots of Obama sons there.
In my genealogy data base I find lots of 14-15 year old girls getting married. Within a year they are having the first of their dozen or so children. (Usually with the same husband, until death do they part.)
It was not uncommon 100+ years ago. Now we try to treat them as children until they're 26.
Pols and media will be all over this. Right?
Nahhhhhhhhh. Doesn’t fit the agenda.
Having alot of children is the rule, not the exception, in human history.
Ah, of course - silly me. :-) And what better well for the gun-grabbers to draw a story from, than that putrid cesspool of gangland that is Chicago?
I guess the Mods are part of the MSM now since they yanked it this story out of Breaking News.
They had no real say in the matter. It’s only in our modern “civilized” culture that we can just do it for fun without personal responsibility.
Danged gun free city just seems to have too many gangs and thugs with guns. Honest folks keep getting shot and murdered by being unarmed. Not this poster. I’m armed and every thug better consider me dangerous at his own peril.
If one guy was shot at 51st street, why’d he drive several miles to LCM instead of going to UC hospital nearby? Afraid he’d get shot again?
Well. think about it. The person(s) who decide “What is news”, well that’s just about the ultimate power.
If they decide that “news” is a couple of gay characters who can’t get wedding photos, then that’s what you are going to hear about. If they decide that “news” is fires in California, then that’s it.
Being in control of the broadcast media they can make “the news” be whatever they want.
And that includes making up "the news" to be whatever they want.
I recently have been working through my family tree as well. Just one or two generations back and it seems to be very common to have 8-12 children. My own mother had 13 brothers and sisters.
And I do find the girls often got married off at a very young age.
Oddly, I am starting to believe teen girls/boys back then were far more mature than what we have today. They knew a lot from being planters or farmers and they also had engrained in them a work ethic and family values, plus a healthy dose of religion.
Somewhere along the line in our culture...it became far more important to keep a child immature and we see that result in the number of “adult children” still living at home in their parent’s basement. I do very much use the term “adult children” and I see it up close nearly everyday in my work.
Grown “kids” still living at home. I show up to take the dog for the daily walk. Every day at several homes there is an ‘adult child’ home watching TV, playing games etc. Why are the parents paying a dogwalker several hundred dollars a month to walk the dog? The only answer I can come up with is because the adult child can’t handle the simplest of responsibility.
Personally I agree it is an amazing culture change when one considers the bigger picture.
Goebbels would curse the fact that he was born 75 years too early, and in the wrong country.
And consider some of the recent gun shooting reports...characterizing these young adults and "children" to the point of even using photos several years back.
If they keep this generation 'immature' and the culture viewing them as some sort of innocents...then the elites have every reason to exert control over them.
There is a whole generation of people who will not grow up, ever.
So do I recall reading on FR just yesterday, that Chicago now has the highest murder rate in the entire country?
The most restrictive gun control as well.
Well that is just a coincidence though.
Hi-cap mag full of ‘keepin it real’.
Someone was ‘disrespected’.
I heard a local paster on the radio saying it was all good.
His guardian and/or parental unit was there,too.
The role of the media as gatekeepers is something I learned decades ago in a college class. It was then that I realized how much power the media had in determining what people thought about things. But it was only when twenty years ago that I rejected the Dem Party I had been a member of for a long time did I fully realize how bad Americans are brainwashed by the lib media. If the media weren't in the bag for every ultra-lib/socialist pol who comes along, this country would be in a lot better shape.
I’ll bet if “dead fish Rahm” was a Republican mayor the media would be all over this story.
I did some tree investigation during an ancestry.com free period. I met my grandfather’s sister and four brothers when I was a kid. The 1880 census revealed that he was one of 11 children. I had never heard of the five that died in infancy.
I get your point but the Nazi rise to power took less that ten years. The traitors in our country have spent a century bringing us to this point.
Hey man, you talkin’ back to me. (Take him out)
You gotta keep ‘em separated.
Hey man, you disrespectin’ me? (Take him out)
You gotta keep ‘em separated.
In a gun free zone, you are a target.
Unless George Zimmerman was holding the weapon, this will be the only article we ever see on this subject.
